Limitation is the last of the three principles of the ICRP system of protection. Limitation, together with Justification and Optimisation, are used as the basis of Radiation Protection internationally. Limitation is defined in ICRP 103 as '..effective dose to individuals shall not exceed the dose limits recommended..'. ICRP requires that Deterministic Effects are avoided and that Probabilistic / Stochastic effects are as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA).
